OECD events on water
The OECD maintains an active programme of water-related events:
- International conferences dedicated to water issues (part of the OECD Global Forum series) – where recent OECD work is shared and further discussed with government officials and water experts from all over the world.
- Sessions in key events in the international water agenda, such as the World Water Forum (held every three years) or the annual World Water Week – where policy messages from recent and on-going work are showcased.
- Workshops and expert meetings that help implement the OECD programme on water by providing an opportunity to receive and discuss expert input into OECD projects.
- Water sessions in OECD meetings focused on other themes – such as governance and agricultural meetings.
A list of upcoming and past events can be found below. More information about participation possibilities and outcomes can be obtained through the links provided. OECD experts are often called to make water-related presentations in international events and to provide expert input to global or regional processes.
